Both editions of Microsoft SQL Server require Microsoft Clustering to be installed to provide HA. Utilizing a shared storage infrastructure enables a simplified and complete instance failover, including temporary databases and user setup.
Zadara storage is available across all AWS AZs, allowing you to spin up HA SQL instances without requiring multiple Amazon EBS volumes or Always-On availability groups.
Additionally, pay-as-you-go (PAYG) pricing means you can better align your costs to actual resource consumption. Whether you only need Zadara for an hour, or decades to come, you won’t pay for anything you don’t need. This presents new opportunities for driving efficiency on the cloud. Zadara allows you to use two AZs for production workloads and Software Assurance, while using data clone capabilities to present dev/test or UAT systems with an instant copy.Download eBook
